Haricharan Pudipeddi went on to add, "Besides Arun Kumar and
#VijaySethupathi, other major star of #Sethupathi is music dir
Nivas Prasanna, a talent to watch out for. Great BGM."
Like many other cop films, Sethupathi is based on the
professional and personal life of a police officer. How does this
film differs from other similar flicks? It's the characterization
of the lead actor and how he balances between being a family man
and a ruthless cop.
Generally, the life of an upright policeman will have its own
set of dramas. One such interesting incident comes with a potential
of putting Vijay Sethupathi's career in jeopardy.
How he overcomes this situation forms the crux of
Sethupathi is a one man show right throughout. Any
actor playing a cop in an action-oriented Tamil cinema should be
prepared to carry the entire film on his shoulder and Vijay
Sethupathi does exactly that with elan.
Remya Nambeesan as a housewife and mother of two has done a neat
job. Her chemistry with Vijay in romantic sequences is one of the
biggest positives of Sethupathi.
Vela Ramamoorthy, who plays a negative role in the film, is good
to watch. His performance is commendable as he comes up with a
Music director Nivas K Prasanna impresses with his songs and
background score. While all his songs are enjoyable, his BGM
manages to lift certain scenes up.
Editing by Sreekar Prasad is another positive in the technical
department. His sharp cuts (especially in the first half) keeps you
hooked to the movie.
Cinematographer Dinesh Krishnan scores big when it comes to the
song and action sequences. However, his monotonous angles and lack
of experimentation come across as a disappointment.
While screenplay is good in the first half, the latter half gets
predictable. Very few scenes manage to arouse your interest in the
second half which is a worry.
Overall, Sethupathi is an honest attempt by the team to
produce a decent cop entertainer by infusing action, romance and
sentiment. But what really makes the film work is Vijay
Sethupathi's ability to shine throughout.
